What is Defcon?

According to Wikipedia excerpt :- “DEF CON (also written as DEFCON or Defcon) is one of the world’s largest annual computer hacker conventions, held every year in Las Vegas, Nevada. The first DEF CON took place in June 1993. Many of the attendees at DEF CON include computer security professionals, journalists, lawyers, federal government employees, crackers, cyber-criminals, security researchers, and hackers with a general interest in computer code, computer architecture, phone phreaking, hardware modification, and anything else that can be “hacked”.”

In the Bangalore region, in India, we run this Defcon Community Group (DCG) under our official ID – DC9180.
